Among the top priorities for health and happiness in Edgar Cayce’s teachings was the advice to meditate “deeply.”
Studies continue to show the amazing, life-enhancing benefits of meditation—stress reduction, improved brain function, better sleep, enhanced immune system, and even reversal of depression and the aging process. In addition to the physical benefits, meditation can help you get in touch with your higher self and improve your sense of connection with God. It has been shown to increase mindfulness and the experience of being fully present in every moment.
